Q: Is there a limit to how many Schedule Events can be added to the Crew Schedule?
A: No, the Crew Schedule is completely customizable to fit your operational needs so we do not put a limit on how many events can be added.
Q: Is there a way to generate a report that shows Crew Schedule Events?
A: Yes! The Flight Duty Rest Report is our customizable reporting tool that will allow users to create reports on their Crew Schedule Events. More information on this reporting tool can be found here Operations and Compliance Reporting
Q: Will my pilots be able to see each other’s schedules?
A: We encourage operators to give their pilots access to the Schedaero Crew App where they will only be able to view their own scheduled events and trip assignments. You are able to grant View Only permissions for Crew Scheduling that would allow them to view the Crew Schedule but not add or edit any events; however, they would be able to see the entire schedule for all your crew members.
Q: How come my pilot is not showing on the crew schedule?
A: A pilot must have qualifications added to their pilot record for them to be listed on the crew schedule. To find out how to add qualifications to your pilot’s record, please see our Academy article on Adding a Pilot
Q: I do not see the Schedule option under the People tab.
A: Users must be given the Crew Scheduling permission by their account administrator in order to have access to the Crew Schedule.
Q: How can I remove an inactive pilot from showing on the Crew Schedule?
A: Inactive pilots will continue to show on the Crew Schedule until their qualifications have been removed from their pilot record. To remove their qualifications, you will need to go into your inactive pilot's list and select the pilot you are trying to remove from the crew schedule.
Once in their pilot record, you will need to go to the qualifications tab and delete each of their qualifications.
